The Hebrew prophet Yo’el (יוֹאֵל or Joel, meaning the LORD is God) provides some of the most exceptional and explicit details regarding the Day of the Lord, a time of judgment in our not-too-distant future that will be cloaked in darkness with armies that conquer like consuming fire. Joel also tells us that in the end times, God will orchestrate the complete redemption of Israel, describing celestial signs in involving the sun, moon and heavenly bodies.
In the Torah, we see that only the Cohen HaGadol (High Priest) had access once a year on Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) to the very Presence of God in the Kodesh HaKodeshim (Holy of Holies), which was the heart of the Mishkan (Tabernacle) and later the Beit HaMikdash (Temple). To enter in, the Cohen HaGadol would go through the Parokhet (פרוכת / veil or curtain) that separated this holiest of places from the rest of the Temple. The word parokhet is derived from the root perek פרך which can mean to break apart or to fracture, but also rigour and severity.
